    I am interested since the originals turned out amazing (wish we could get the cordovan again). But, I would really only be interested in something pretty mainstream.

    How about Tobacco Suede, the reddish version we first stocked?

    Well it's not blue. ;-) But it sounds like a nice idea in its own right.

    Are there pictures up on your site of this suede? I admit that I was thinking calf but I am open to consider other options.

    I'm open to any ideas on the makeup. I loved the originals from pics

    Thanks for the clarification. Should be good!

    G&G's KN14 last (as pictured in terrorsquad's post), for dressier loafers, is probably the best last on the market. :nodding:

    We should probably do an Antibes GMTO in honor of the KN14 last. It only makes sense.

    Edit: I am only interested in a boot u-cap. Willing to consider brogue or austerity, calf or suede.

    Looks like we have quite a few interested in the Uwing boot. Someone want to throw out a makeup? I'm probably leaning towards a brown color as opposed to blue, maybe a museum brown or something? Happy to discuss options.

    Dig the museum brown straight tip oxford that Skoak has, but I think a lighter museum shade would complement the lines if an austerity brogue really well.

    Here's a Saint Crispin's austerity boot in a lighter brown. If there was a museum version, I'd be in:
